I'm a freelance writer and editor specializing in essays and interviews about art and culture.
My work has appeared in The Boston Globe, BuzzFeed, Los Angeles Magazine, NBC Asian America, O: The Oprah Magazine, The Rumpus, Shondaland, The Washington Post, Zora, and more.
I'm currently the Weekend Editor at Apartment Therapy and a copy editor for clients including HelloGiggles and Hunker.
Previously, at HelloGiggles, I co-founded The Blend, a vertical dedicated to mixed-race and multicultural identity. Before that, I was the online editor at Japanese American community newspaper The Rafu Shimpo and a fiction reader at Guernica Magazine. I have a BA in Japanese Studies from Middlebury College and a Master of Professional Writing (MPW) in Nonfiction from the University of Southern California.
I also test knitting patterns for designers and yarn companies and work part-time at a local yarn shop.
